The Pigeonhole

The Pigeonhole is tucked away from the bustling city, perfect for people like me who love some serenity in life. This little cafe is located, in my humble opinion, in the best area to hang out – Tanjong Pagar. Drop by someday, any day and for the matter everyday to get pampered with an array of cafes and restaurants located along winding streets power packed with culture and goodness!

A book cafe & dynamic arts space promoting local NGOs, music, film, performance & art – The Pigeonhole brings in uncommon beers from around the world. Besides that, they also offer pure simple coffee and tea to please the hearts and stomach of everyone.

What should you do there?

Step 1: Bring your guitar or a book, your laptop or a buddy, or just step right in with nothing but your awesome self.

Step 2: Pick your favourite spot. Now, this can be tough. Though I love the 2nd sofa from the left of the cafe (you will definitely know what I am talking about when you head there), my friends love the beanbags or the tall chairs. TAKE YOUR PICK!


Step 3: Wonder around the cafe and spot little treasures of art. Then, as you walk back to that special spot, stop by the counter to order a nice cuppa. My favourite is a double shot soy piccolo latte with ice. Immensely heavenly on a warm day. They even serve food now! Grab those too!


Step 4: Enjoy. Day dream. Imagine yourself as a lazy cat. And, if you are lucky, sometimes there are random events or meetings held there.

Check out The Pigeonhole guys. Quote “one-soy-piccolo-latte” to get a coffee therapy and rehab for the soul. Cheers!
